Breakfast is the owner's favorite meal, so this Little Italy eatery proudly emphasizes morning staples: eggs, pancakes and French toast. Come lunchtime, there are salads, sandwiches and soups. Pancakes, as the name indicates, are a specialty—and they’re a step above your basic buttermilk. Look for varieties such as ricotta, butterscotch, tiramisu and more. Pancake-appropriate drink pairings include fresh-squeezed fruit and veggie drinks from the juice bar and numerous coffee concoctions, from lattes and cappuccinos to espressos. Drinks are available to go, and even if you don’t have time for pancakes, you won’t leave hungry: Stax also sells muffins and homemade biscotti for the grab-and-go crowd.
